It takes 10 days to compile the world on an 11/750. FYI :-)

I did a hack a while back to start the second CPU on a 8350, and got
it to do some nasty things. It's very easy to kick off the other CPUs,
just a few lines of code, compared to a Dual PPro 200 which required
~700 lines of code just to find out that there are an extra CPU :-)
